The Decameron (subtitle: Prencipe Galeotto) is a collection of 100 novellas by Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio, probably begun in 1350 and finished in 1353. It is a medieval allegorical work best known for its bawdy tales of love, appearing in all its possibilities from the erotic to the tragic. Some believe many parts of the tales are indebted to the influence of The Book of Good Love from the Literary Circles of the Court of King Alfons X "the Wise". Many notable writers such as Chaucer are said to have drawn inspiration from The Decameron.

True Artful Reading
I'm so glad someone had the intelligence to add this app! I first heard about this collection of stories when I fell in love with the paintings of John William Waterhouse. One is entitled Decameron. Very beautiful & very engaging. Now I picture the painting while I'm reading the stories and it's quite wonderful.
